Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today expressed deep shock and sorrow at the death of firefighter Sohel Rana. Sohel Rana, who sustained serious injuries during the FR Tower fire rescue operation, died at a hospital in Singapore early today.
In a condolence message, the prime minister said Sohel Rana will remain as
a “bright example” of sacrificing own life for saving lives of others.

Dhaka and was admitted to its intensive care unit (ICU).
Later, Sohel Rana was sent to Singapore by an air ambulance at the
directives of the prime minister for his better treatment.
The FR Tower inferno on March 28 claimed the lives of 26 people and left
around 100 injured.
